Audiotalaia

Edu Comelles

Audiotalaia is an online platform, a netlabel devoted to produce, curate, support and disseminate works around experimental music, sound creativity and beyond. Audiotalaia has been operating from Catalonia, Scotland and currently in Valencia. The label has three main catalogues: The Digital Catalogue, The Physical Catalogue and The Live Recordings Archive.

The Digital Catalogue operates on a netlabel basis, releasing works under Creative Commons Licenses free to download. This archive holds the majority of releases on the label. Between 2009 and 2014 the catalogue released works on a monthly basis. The albums are released in Mp3, WAV, AIFF and Lossless formats.

The Physical Catalogue is dedicated to release physical limited editions of curated works by different artists. The catalogue has a unique design and packaging for each of the releases conforming a collection of works on a wide range of styles and aesthetics. The editions are all hand-crafted, numbered and released in CD and CDr formats.

The Live Recordings Archive is a repository and testimony of the majority of events held by Audiotalaia in Valencia (Spain). It serves as chronological archive spreading abroad the activities organized and curated in various venues, festivals and concert series all under the influence area of the label since 2010. It also hosts the recordings of LOM an electronic music ensemble working in Valencia between 2010 and 12. All recordings are hosted between our Bandcamp page and our Mixcloud account, free to stream.

Audiotalaia is also an umbrella for the curatorial activities of Edu Comelles in Valencia. Since 2010 Audiotalaia hosts the archived outcome of concerts, talks, workshops and performances organized in Valencia as part of various festivals or venues across town and the country. Those are Ciclo Herzios (2010-12), Off_Herzios (2012-13), Off_Hz La Gallera Suena (2014) and Espai Sonor (2016-...).

In Summer, Audiotalaia holds a 10 days workshop / artists residency on the Catalan Countryside called Audiotalaia Summer Camp, an event thought to be a formative and educational program for young artists willing to develop their creativity from a sound perspective.

Finally, we do craft DiY Microphones. We make Omnidirectional Stereo microphones and Contact microphones at a fair price. The benefits of this activity are use to support the Audiotalaia activity and costs.

Partners:

Audiotalaia has been actively involved and a supporter at the creation of two online labels or platforms: Audition records run by Mexican improviser Julián Bonequi and LEA Ediciones run by Juanjo Palacios. Each project has been sponsored by Audiotalaia at their early stages.

Graphein is a work entirely made of pencils and paper sounds.

The basic idea was to explore a material and its sonic capabilities.

Miguel Isaza always involved in the field recordings area delivers an abstract series of compositions under a certain set of rules. Those, a variety of self-imposed working structures lead to this work, Spheres. In his own words, Isaza states that: Spheres is a sound work created as an exploration of silence and resonance. Through granular and spectral processing of field recordings of metallic objects and spaces, Isz creates a new experience from the real soundscape, using sound as a material...

Atilio Doreste and José Guillén are two improvisers that found each other in the Island of Tenerife in the Canary Islands reef. And they found each other by exploring, experimenting and developing an intuitive framework around a few core ideas and basic principles. Some of...

Often musicians in the realm of free improvisation talk about intuition. This comes in hand with uncertainty, a feeling of stepping into the unknown, into the dark (or light?). When I asked Adrià Bofarull to write some notes on “fireworks” I came across a wide variety of forms of intuition and tons of unknown, a set of random thoughts that, all together, made sense. Reading the notes, one realize that Bofarull is building a complex scaffolding system to keep away the feeling of getting...

"In aesthetics, the uncanny valley is a hypothesized relationship between the degree of an object's resemblance to a human being and the emotional response to such an object. The concept of the uncanny valley suggests that humanoid objects which appear almost, but not exactly, like real human beings elicit uncanny, or strangely familiar, feelings of eeriness and revulsion in observers.
